It was time again, the autumn colour [paradise] had been painted. Like every year, just georgeous.
I did an upgrade of my gear in September last year. This was the first time I went out with my Sigma 17-50 2.8 lens. I always wanted a wide-aperture lens on short focal length and so far, I am happy with it.
This ain’t Norway, this is Høhenwarte.
(Of course it is river Saale and lake Hohenwarte. The norwegian style branding is part of a tourism campaign.)
As all the years before, autumn paints this hillside red. And again, it’s just gorgeous.
Taken on a short hike around Ziegenrück. Lake Hohenwarte with former “Conrod” powerplant, which became useless after the damn has been built. (finally it is being renovated)
An awesome “playground” when I was a kid. Now it is owned and access isn’t allowed. (not sure if it was when I was a kid, but in the reunification aftermath, nobody cared)
Always worth a visit. Still an awesome place.

Another taken on a rainy day. Foggy Saale river in Ziegenrück
Upper Saale river with a moody layer of fog on a grey and rainy day.
Tried a nice kayaking spot. Sadly nothing I would do with the faltboat because of low water level these days.
Time to start posting some photos I made in the last couple of months. Phone and hard drive contain pictures I have not posted yet. Always wanted but forgot later to do.
This one was taken on the ride back home from Frankfurt after having been to Sardegna. In my eyes the perfect picture to close such a trip.
Also a good example about how far development of phone cameras and also mobile editing software has gone.
